Finke Color Inspiration RED Box
I see red!
When you hear someone say this, you know that the person has lost control through anger or indignation and is full of emotion. We cannot escape the psychological effect of color. Color perception triggers emotions and associations, while emotions leave an impression of the color.
When red is involved, it’s all about strong emotions, energy and passion. The color red stands for love, for joie de vivre and vitality. Red has an invigorating effect and helps to mobilize our inner resources. Red is an incentive to take action.
Red is a warm color. We associate comfort, warmth, closeness – life. Certainly, red is especially important for us because it is the first color we perceive in the womb. Red gives us strength, determination, self-confidence and willpower. Red is reserved for special occasions, which is also reflected in our language: There is the red carpet or Red Letter Day. “I want to paint the town red,” you might say, letting off steam.
But heat can also be increased to heat, to excitement, anger, aggression and brutality. Red signals danger, we are immediately alerted when we see it. We speak of fervent enthusiasm when people look neither to the left nor to the right in their determination. And we figuratively raise the red flag as a warning when things are taken too far. A company that is not doing so well gets into the red.
Red has a special meaning in many cultures: in China, red is the color of luck, wealth and prosperity. In many regions of Africa it is the color of life and in the Catholic Church it is the color of the highest dignitaries.
